This generation is computer savvy, and this is an extension of those computer and technology skills. Creating a video resume just makes sense to them, more so than turning in a one-dimensional paper resume.

ResumeTube.com announces the launch of their online Web site, providing job-seekers with the ability to place video resumes, and employers with the ability to screen job candidates. After being posted on the site, the resumes are then available to prospective employers seeking to hire for open positions. The service is being slated as a combination of YouTube and Monster.com. The video resume employment site provides the next step in the job-seeking market.
"Video resumes are the hottest trend when it comes to getting hired," explains Fred Morrill, president of ResumeTube.com. "This generation is computer savvy, and this is an extension of those computer and technology skills. Creating a video resume just makes sense to them, more so than turning in a one-dimensional paper resume."
Video resumes are becoming popular on the Internet and, increasingly, people of all ages are turning to them to find the right position. There are many benefits for employers who turn to viewing video resumes during the hiring process; it can expedite the new-hire process, and save money by conducting an online pre-screening of the candidates. Additionally, employers are able to view the candidates, hear their communication skills, and get a first look and listen without worrying about scheduling conflicts.
"We all know that first impressions go a long way, especially when it comes to jobs," says Morrill. "Employers usually know in the first minute whether they are interested in hiring the candidate or not. Video resumes can be perfected before airing so that the person always puts their best foot forward, creating a stellar first impression."
Effective video resumes should always be pre-scripted, rehearsed, and professional. Job-seekers should aim to dress and act professionally, and avoid adding any music or additional people to the video. A good rule of thumb is to keep it simple, with good communication and a professional image.
ResumeTube.com is based in Jupiter, Florida, and was started by Fred Morrill. The service provides a valuable tool that can be used by job-seekers and employers seeking qualified candidates alike. Candidates can record and place their video resume on the site, to be screened later by potential employers. To learn more about ResumeTube.com, visit the Web site at http://www.ResumeTube.com.
